If your trip to Northampton is all booked but your travel itinerary is looking a bit empty, let us give you a few hints and tips.
There's nothing quite as exciting as exploring somewhere new. While you're in the area, PPL Center and Coca-Cola Park should be among them. Another favorite attraction to visit is Allentown Art Museum.
If you've checked off all the major sights in Northampton, don't be in a rush to take off your comfy sightseeing shoes just yet. You'll find iconic attractions a short road trip away. Philadelphia is 53 miles away and home to Liberty Bell Center. It's well worth paying a visit.
Here for work-related reasons? You'll be happy that Colonial Industrial Quarter has some excellent hotels, restaurants and cafés close by. It's situated 7 miles from Northampton.
Below you'll find our top suggestions if you want to bag the best deal on a car rental:
Get ready for a fun-filled adventure in Northampton. The car you choose depends on the type of vacation you have in mind. If you're heading there on your own, why not go for a compact or a mini? They're economical to run and easy to park. If you're traveling with a few friends, consider an intermediate or a standard car. They offer more room to move and space for bags.
You'll be happy to hear that there's a huge variety of both luxury and economy vehicles to rent in Northampton. What you end up going with depends on what you're willing to spend and the activities you've got planned. Specialty vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about comfort and class. If you're splashing out, why not pick up a high-end SUV, or perhaps a cushy mid-sized vehicle? On the other hand, if you're just after something to get you around town as economically as possible, we can help you out with a budget compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
When driving in unfamiliar territory, you should have a good grasp of the local traffic regulations. Here's what you'll need to know to jump behind the wheel in Northampton with confidence:
You'll be driving on the right-hand side of the road in Northampton. Even though the rules may be similar to home, we recommend driving with extra care on roads that are unfamiliar.
It's relatively easy to find somewhere to park in Northampton, though it can be difficult to get a spot in the busiest areas. Booking a hotel that has on-site parking is a wise idea.
There sure are. In Northampton, speed limits range from 20 mi/h to 70 mi/h. Most built-up areas have a default speed limit of 20 mi/h unless otherwise indicated.
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your car rental company may charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. This is the usual practice. Alternatively, it may give your contact information to the relevant local agency so the fine is sent to you directly.
It's not illegal to use a cell phone while driving, but we don't recommend it. For a safer ride, it's wise to wait until you've finished your trip before calling or texting.
While operating a vehicle in Northampton, it's illegal to have a BAC (blood alcohol content) greater than 0.08%. Thinking of having a glass or two of wine while you're out? Consider using a ride-sharing service or taking a taxi.
Yes it is. However, before you turn you must bring the vehicle to a complete stop and only move on if there's no approaching traffic.
Seat belts are required in Northampton County. However, this rule may vary for certain vehicles, like those used by public transportation networks.
